Menstrual Health Series

So glad a series like this is made! I had never paid attention to my menstrual cycle, as I was not having any (training) and I was convinced this was good because it meant “I train hard”.
I am now learning to work with my cycle and am very happy this subject is being addressed!

Awesome Podcast

Super interesting conversations about professional bike racing and what it is like to be a professional in endurance sport. If you are looking at the path of professional endurance sport or just like to ride bikes this is the podcast for you.

Fun and insightful!

The shows are a refreshing inside view of professional cycling and the supporting work behind the scenes.
And I get to improve my French:)
